Alberto Mijangos
Trusting the Darkness Series

2003

About

Guided by Chinese philosophers, the artist centers a grey orb surrounded by geometric patterns in black and deep russet. The orb is akin to perfection, while the darkness is imperfection; neither can exist without the other. The work, painted on board and framed, conveys the depth of Dutch painting. Unusual for the artist, he included his initials on the lower right hand corner. Born in Mexico City, Alberto Mijangos studied in the 1940's at San Carlos Art Academy and the School of the Chicago Art Institute. Mijangos belonged to the generation that came after Rivera and Siqueiros; he knew Tamayo whose influence he felt as a young painter. Mijangos matured as an artist in San Antonio, Texas, and considered himself both Mexican and American. His work, abstract with decidedly figurative elements, is that of a master artist.
